Bette Midler joked that the well-dressed ladies at yesterday’s Central Park Conservancy lunch at the Mandarin Oriental came straight out of reality-TV central casting. “I feel we have the makings here of what could become a groundbreaking reality television series, ‘The Fund-Raisers of Central Park,’ ” Midler said, adding, “I’ll be the mean, wine-swilling blonde with the unstable husband.” She also poked fun at GOP presidential hopefuls Ron Paul, Herman Cain and Michele Bachmann — “It’s hard to appear less credible than Sarah Palin, but I’m darned if she hasn’t done it!” Midler was honored for her work rebuilding parks through her New York Restoration Project nonprofit, including planting trees all over the city through the MillionTreesNYC initiative. The actress, who’s currently filming “Parental Guidance” in Georgia, also joked she couldn’t stay long at the lunch because, “I promised the mayor that I would run down and help him tidy up Zuccotti Park.”
